Would you like to participate and benefit from our program (→ link…)? Or have you been recommended for admission to the Swiss Study Foundation? Submit your application as soon as possible, so as not to miss out on anything.
You should apply for our program no later than two years before you finish your Master’s degree. PhD students are no longer allowed to apply. We suggest that you submit your application as soon as possible, preferably right after receiving your high school diploma or starting your Bachelor’s degree. Our application dossier contains all the relevant information on how to apply and what documents to submit. You may either obtain this dossier directly from your high school or get a recommendation from your university, suggesting to apply. If the latter is the case, let us know by mail where we can send you the application dossier.
Spontaneous applications are welcome!
Talented students are normally invited to apply by their high school or university. But we also encourage you to apply spontaneously, if you are open, committed and have achieved good academic results. Before you start on your application, you need to call our office (044 233 33 00) either on a Monday or Tuesday afternoon for a first exploratory interview. If you meet all our requirements, we will send you our application dossier. Our homepage informs about the requirements you need to fulfill in order to submit a successful application. → More…
Our application procedure is comprehensive: after a first evaluation of the application dossiers that are submitted to us, we invite the eligible candidates to a one-day assessment center. Based on several interviews and group discussions, we decide whether the candidates are accepted into our program. An admission committee, made up of several benevolent assessors with different backgrounds, make the final decision. Our assessment centers take place in Switzerland’s three different linguistic regions. All candidates who have been at an assessment center may ask for a comprehensive feedback.
Students, who would like to participate in the program of the Swiss Study Foundation, may join as guests at certain events.
